I though about doing a publicly verifiable voting system, here is the idea:

  • You give each voter a random random corresponding to his vote
  • You make every vote public as a list of (voting number, vote)

So every vote is anonymous and you don't have to trust the voting system, you can easily see that that your vote is correctly taken into account. (In the case of an US election for example).

I think it already exists and I'm looking for papers/articles on the subject. So, what's the name of a similar system ?
